Allied Universal, a leading global security and facility services company, is continuing its recent acquisitions trail into 2022 and has now acquired Norred & Associates, Inc, an Atlanta, Georgia-based full-service security firm. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
With revenues in excess of $36 million and more than 830 employees, Norred & Associates has been providing clients with a full range of security services encompassing manned guarding, investigations, pre-employment screening and security consulting.
“This company has built a trusted brand through outstanding employee and client relationships,” said Steve Jones, Global Chairman & CEO of Allied Universal. “I am honoured to have Norred & Associates be part of the Allied Universal family.” Since 1981, Norred & Associates has served many of Atlanta’s leading businesses, as well as numerous Fortune 500 companies in the Southeast and nationwide.
This follows the acquisition at the end of December 2021, when the company also acquired Weinstein Security, Inc, a Windsor, California-based security company. Terms of this deal were also not disclosed.
For more than 20 years, Weinstein Security has been providing a full range of private security services focusing on the following industries: retail, wineries, residential, hospitals, commercial real estate, manufacturing, mining and events. Founded in 2002 by Dan and Maureen Weinstein, Weinstein Security offers security guard services in the following counties: Sonoma, Marin, Napa and Mendocino.
In April last year Allied Universal acquired G4S Plc in the UK for an estimated transaction value of $3.8 billion, making the organisation the 3rd largest employer in North America and the 7th largest employer in the world.
